Logan County Genealogical Society will meet Saturday, August 19, 1:00 p.m., at the Oklahoma Territorial Museum, 406 E. Oklahoma.

The program, “Underground Railroad Quilts: Fact, Fiction, or Folklore,” will be presented by Guthrie native, Debbie Maker Longnecker. She will combine two of her favorite hobbies, sewing and reading, to explore the quilt blocks that led runaway slaves to freedom via the underground railroad. Controversy regarding the validity of the use of quilts will be addressed by using quilt block and material patterns from the Civil War Era.
Mrs. Longnecker graduated from Langston University with a degree in Elementary Education in 1989 and worked at the university for the next two years in the education department. She started her teaching career in 1991, teaching a combined class of third and fourth graders at Langston Elementary. After Langston Elementary was annexed by Coyle in 1993, Debbie moved to the Coyle Public School system where she was a middle school Language Arts teacher for fourteen years.
Following her heart and love of books, Debbie enrolled in the Library Media program at the University of Central Oklahoma and became the school librarian at Coyle Public School, holding that position for the next eight years. She continued her education by achieving her second Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Southern Nazarene University in 2013, moving to Guthrie Upper Elementary School in 2014. She retired from teaching in May of this year.

Light refreshments complements of Francis Hadden.

Dr. Debra Spindle will present a program on researching your American Indian ancestors at the June 17 meeting of the Logan County Genealogical Society.
American Indian ancestry is a popular topic in the genealogy community and researching it can be one of the most confusing. The speaker will present the most basic information on the topic including where to find records and what is required for application for tribal citizenship. She will also discuss the role DNA may play (or not) in determining Indian ancestry.
Dr. Spindle is a popular speaker on various topics in the area and out of state. This is a return visit to speak at the genealogical society. She works in the research library of the Oklahoma Historical Society following a career in public libraries and teaching on the university level. She brings to the table not only her library research skills but a personal background which includes early settlers in the Oklahoma Panhandle and Mennonite immigrants to western Oklahoma.
Contact is Nelda Brown,, or 293-6945.
